  • a Finalist 2013 Latino Books Into Movie Awards
  • 2012 Best Fantasy New Mexico Arizona BOOK AWARDS WINNER!
A touching novel about the unlikely friendship between a devout Catholic and a reluctant witch. A book about loyalty, friendship, and the depth of love. The Land of Enchantment series shines with the little-known world of Southwestern magic, which gives this book a compelling twist and a refreshing breath of originality.

"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but humanity will never break me," -- so claims the witch, Salia, but she was born with a soft, all too human heart that even being an outcast won't harden. Salia is a sister, granddaughter and daughter of witches. And she is a half-breed.

There is a portrait in the house at the bottom of Witch Hill. Salia looks out of the picture with haunted eyes. She is pale because her mother pinches her arm. But it is Salia's Native American grandmother who dominates the picture. She is 110 years old but appears to be a teenager, holding out in her hand an ordinary-looking rock, a piedra imán, a rare shape-shifting stone, allowing her to bathe like in the fountain of youth, to be immortal while others around her age.

A FEW INTERESTING FACTS - Did you know that?
  • About 80% of the magic in The Land of Enchantment series is practiced by Southwest witches. Witches in the Southwest flash into fireballs and soar across the sky, as
    recorded by witnesses in witch trials.
  • La Llorona is a legendary witch called "the weeping ghost", who is known throughout the Americas by tens of millions. She has been seen by many as she haunts the rivers, lakes and drainage ditches.
  • The scary Penitentes have held power as a secret Catholic society for centuries in Spain and New Mexico.
  • New Mexico is the only state where that had The Spanish Inquisition. Monks hunted witches from the 1626 until The Spanish Inquisition was disbanded in the 1800's.

The Spirit Clearing, by Mark Tufo. (Still free?)

"This was a haunting story of a young man's life following a horrific car crash. I can't really describe the story without giving too much away. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put my Nook down. The story is so deep and twisted that it reminds me of a Stephen King novel. The characters are complex and the story will remain with me for a very long time. Tufo is definately one to watch. Although I've enjoyed his other books, this one truly showcases his talent for spinning stories that are scary, sad and beautiful. How many writers can do that?" -- Amazon reviewer

After a horrific accident Mike wakes to find himself blind in one eye. He now sees things that others can't and nobody will listen to him.
That is until he meets Jandilyn Hollow. Will she be able to pull him out of the depths of his despair?
Can love transcend even death?

Flirts! 5 Romantic Short Stories (The Flirts! Collection), by Lisa Scott. (Still free?)

"When I purchased this book, I wasn't sure what to expect, but it had garnered a lot of positive reviews so I figured, why not? I'm so glad I picked this book up. There are five short stories all related by characters and setting, yet each story has a different take on romance. In one, a woman wishes to be the dumpee instead of the dumper. In another, a woman is sick and tired of men overlooking her and going for her gorgeous friend instead. Although the reader knows how each story will ultimately end (these are happily-ever-after stories here, folks), it's an interesting ride to the destinations. Each character is fun and quirky, and the wit that is sprinkled throughout never fails to amuse." -- Amazon reviewer
